issues for the united states is how do we react to this? because we've got our fifth fleet stationed in bahrain. bahrain has been a friend of the united states for last several many decades and there is this tension between our commitment to human rights, our commitment to our democratic principles on the one hand which are vitally important for us but our real world, concrete interests insuring the flow of oil through the straits of hormuz which you covered. insuring that we have stable relations and influence with governments in the region like saudi arabia who have an in this. melissa: i want to talk about the video we're looking at here. he is trying to make the case, he said this repeatedly and very open about it when were doing the interview and didn't shy away from the question. when you have people in the streets throwing molotov cocktails you are putting in jeopardy the safety of the rest of our citizens. he makes it sounds like you have a few people causing trouble the other side would say these are a few people standing up for democracy that want a voice and this is a mona
at this crisis? speak of the united state unites attacked september 11, 11 years ago, and united states attacked september 11 yesterday. what does that mean? the united states territories, the embassy, it was egypt and libya. were they coordinated attacks? when the president came out, as you rightly did, he should have followed that by saying these attacks are not going to be tolerated, we will hold the host governments responsible for this. some indication even in egypt there was advanced warning these attacks are coming which is why the americans had gotten out of that embassy. the president of the united states needs to say to those countries who will hold you responsible, have to protect our people, you have to have better protection of our people and if you don't do that we will reassess our relationship with you because if you don't stand strong right now, this is what happened to jimmy carter and why ronald reagan was elected. jimmy carter did not do something strong. he apologized, said let's try to negotiate and that is the kind of response i heard from president obama. dagen: did we ha
the united states. ever. it is likely the iranian's president final speech to the u.n. attacking the united states and railed on israel calling its people "uncivilized." this is the holiest jewish holiday of the year. both presidential nominees crossing paths in ohio today. voters in ohio cast ballots in days. we will look at the poll that shows a candidate leading well outside the margin of error. the rising cost to stay in touch. smartphones can be expensive. we know that. just wait until you hear how much they are cutting into a lot of family budgets. that is all ahead unless breaking news changes everything. this is "studio b." first from fox at 3:00 in new york city, the iranian president, ahmadinejad, today delivered what could be the last antiisraeli american and antiisraeli ranting in front of the u.n. the american delegation did not walk out. the american delegation never even showed up. they were out before he took the podium. the president, ahmadinejad, has less than a year left in the second and final term. the united states and israel have accuseddive ran of working toward a nu
and final term. the united states and israel have accuseddive ran of working toward a nuclear bomb. inspectors have questioned claims that the enrichment activists are for peaceful purposes. ahmadinejad said the israelis were uncivilized zionists. >> the pledge to disclose armaments in due time is being used as a threat against nations to get them to accept a new era of continued threats while the uncivilized zionists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear average of this reality. >>shepard: as i reported the american delegation boycotted the speech along with the israeli delegates which decided not to hear the iranian president on john yom kippur, te most holy day of the jewish calendar. >> he again used the trip to the united nations not to address the legitimate aspirations of the iranian people, but, instead, spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against israelis according to the mission to the u.n., the special spokesman. more subdued this year than last year. >>jonathan: given this is his last speech as president of iran and the rhetoric we hav
of doubt and decline. we can elect mitt romney the president of the united states and get america back on track. >> shepard: democrats had planned a similar tactic to send vice president bide ton florida during the convention in florida. the president called off that visit because hurricane isaac was hitting. congressman ryan is leading the charge against the president it would appear, carl? >> that's right, shep. republicans are making good their pledge to make this the most aggressive counter argument that's ever happened at a convention. they do site he had planned to be in florida at the republic national convention though they were interrupted by isaac. marco rubio, nikki haley, the governor of south carolina, governor of oklahoma as well. ryan gave what was more the most part a standard stump speech signal the question for the week for are you better off now as you were four years ago reagan made famous. here is paul ryan's 2012 rendition. >> every president since the great depression who asked americans to send them into a second term could say you are better off today than you
. it was happening. in the last election, 2008 the jewish vote in the united states when 78 percent president obama. >> if you ask me about the policy of president obama regarding is relevant to you president obama was not a friend of israel. stuart: that is where i have to hand it. dagen and, carry it forward. charles: you'll be interested, we have a big story that just came in. sports related. dagen: everyone listen to this breaking news. you will want to hear it. the owners of the boston red sox have begun quietly shopping the team and are mulling a potential sale of the story baseball franchise. charles: well, charlie gasparino is the one breaking business. he joins us on the telephone with some details. >> reporter: well, full disclosure, this is coming from a yankee fan. [laughter] taken for what it's worth. people with direct knowledge of the situation, here's what we know. the boston red sox management is quietly shopping the franchise. they have had an internal discussion about selling the boston red sox. they have talked to at least one person i know about the potential sale of the price
and commitments of the united states. i think the american jewish voters who support obama resonate to, whether wisely or not, they see in him a character whose values are in line with them and then will trust that his support for israel will get there. do i think a lot of people how have reason to question that the last three and a half years. yes, do i think the numbers are going to go down. >> yes. do i think that the obama campaign should worry about that. and not worry about it because of what it says about american jews. i think that america should worry about it because it says if they are weak about the relationship with israel that's not a jewish vote that's an american security thing that weakens all of us. >> i've got to bring up the issue of president obama's what some see as an apparent tilt towards muslims in the middle east. that's an apparent tilt. apparently to a lot of people, not to mention the refusal to meet with bb netanyahu. >> which i think was a terrible mistake. >> doesn't that lower the number of proportion of the jewish vote for president obama? >> i think it will. >
working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli
surveillance in the united states. after their two weeks of work, lawmakers will likely only finish government spending, maybe disaster aid or benefits for needy families. it is very unlikely congress resolves anything on taxes, fiscal cliff, post office reform, or the farm bill. and a top house republican blames it on the senate and says it is all democrats. >> the u.s. congress has been working quite a bit. it's the u.s. senate that's been stopping everything. so we don't know how much comes to fruition, but we do know we will get things through the house, but when it gets to the senate -- [inaudible]. rich: democrats say it is the republicans fault. in an op-ed in politico, it says since president obama took office republicans have done little but obstruct and delay. democrats have offered their plans. republicans theirs. neither sees the political benefit of negotiating any of this until they know who wins in november. connell: rich, thank you. rich edson in d.c. for more, let's bring douglas holtz-eakin in, former cbo director, also in washington. it's almost a joke to us after a while, t
policy of the united states, progressive area into the fdr and lbj years and we accept those laws now as part of redistribution. stuart: judge, i've the got to jump in. i would go further. i would maintain that to some degree, redistribution, neo-socialism is popular. >> it's popular. certainly popular with the 47% of whom mitt romney spoke. and some receive some for social security and medicare, most are paid money from the government. >> paying payroll taxes on that money. >> this is a scam. here is the the scam. when fdr sold the country on social security, he said we will quote, hold your money for you, his word. we will hold it for you and when you retire, we will give you back your nest egg. he was lying. we know he was lying because at the same time he said we will hold your money for you, he dispatched justice department lawyers to the supreme court to argue against challenges on the constitutionality of social security. and then those arguments, the lawyers said it's not the money of the taxpayer, it's the federal government's money and the federal government is free to spend
. the defense minister pointed out we have best relations between israel and united states of the securities we have ever had. we have operation iron dome which allows the folks in israel to be protected from these rockets. i think it is one of those things that it is election year thing. connell: but the week of the u.n. general assembly, you don't think that's a fair political criticism from the other side? say hey listen, there's a lot going on here in the world, you should have sat down with them, you don't think that's fair? >> i don't think it's fair. he keeps good communications with the rest of the world. our relations with the rest of the world have been better than a long time. when i travel, people were very very pleased with what the administration was doing. they respect the president. look, we're in the last what 40 some days of a presidential campaign. that's the high priority. connell: let's talk about that a little bit before we let you go. the republicans would say look at the unemployment rate under president obama how it's stayed above 8%, this is quote unquote our year, we
of people protesting this anti-muslim film made here in the united states. dagen: rick leventhal from fox news joins us live. rick. >> the pakistani government declared today a national holiday, love for the prophet. nonviolence, but things got ugly fast. and across the streets of pakistan including islamabad to keep protesters from approaching the consulate there. and demonstrations in karachi, five movie theaters were burned and a couple of banks on fire. and one officer killed there. and in peshawar, hundreds of demonstrators set movie theaters on fire and police used tear gas. at some point opened the fire on the people and hit a pakistani news vehicle and killed the driver there. and they were marching through the streets and protesting the anti-muslim film and burned a makeshift coffin draped with an american flag and burned an effigy of president obama and around middle east and africa and security has been beefed up at a number of u.s. and western embassies around the region as a precaution, guys. dagen: rick, thank you for that reporting. connell: and nicole, the new york stock e
been going in terms of violence, and also, he says this is not over yet because if the united states does not respond appropriately to his mind, which means punishing those involved with this film, he says these protests could continue. i said, what do you want to have dope to the filmmakers? he said, well, i'd like to see them tried in front of a sharia court meaning if they don't repent for insulting the prophet, he thinks they should be executed. that shows how quickly, simply how a jihadist leader talks about an anti-american protest brings out a few thousand people in front of the u.s. embassy. that shows the ground swell of anti-americanism now taking place in cairo. back to you. tracy: leeland, out in cay row, thank you very much. ashley: continuing with rising tensions in the middle east, oil traders growing more concerned as conflicts spread west to oil rich nigeria. phil flynn has more on this. are you concerned then, phil, what's going on in nigeria? >> i am right now. see, egypt doesn't produce a lot of oil, and because we built in good buffer of supply in case of a disru
the united states is weak and withdrawing and you do that, you leave a power vacuum. jenna: joining us now, -- kt mcfarland, fox security analyst. you worked inside a variety of administration as part of the defense department. what do you think is going on here? >> initially, jenna, i thought, okay they don't want to be accused after mission accomplished moment. president said we won the war or terror. bin laden is dead and now he is campaigning. if it looks like there was terrorist attack or maybe al qaeda affiliation they don't want to say that so they really didn't want to have that mission accomplished banner behind them going into an election. now if what we just uncovered here at fox news with bret baier, if the administration knew on day one it was not only a terrorist attack but it was an al qaeda attack, if they knew before day one because there was a defense department public report saying al qaeda in libya, a profile, what did they know and when did they know it? i worked in the white house during water gaet -- watergate, the steady constant drip, drip, drip, the story changed
countries to get a clear red line. clinton reiterated the united states position that diplomacy. >> america want to resolve the issue through diplomacy and we believe there is time and pace to do so and that time is not unlimited and the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining an nuclear weapon. >> gretchen: president obama was critized for not meeting with netanyahu during the period . he will likely call him . and mitt romney will also call netanyahu today . >> gretchen: brand new video out of nepal. 19 people were killed in the crash that happened minutes from take off. the pilot reported trouble and trying to turn back . officials are not sure it caught fire before or after it crashed. brand new details in the deadly work place shooting in minnesota. an ex-sign employee open be fire killing four people before killing himself . he looked for the people who foired hip early that day . neighbors heard the shots and even had people running to them for help. >> a gentlemen was breathing hard and scared and had said can you hear the sirens, there's been a shooting an
together since both the united states federal reserve and the bank of japan lored interest rate policy and put in additional stimulus in the global economy. last night silver and gold cracked, and there were a lot of people shaking their heads as to why the metals cracked, and there is perhaps talk out there there were large derivative positions out there that perhaps silver gets above $36 an ounce, you could see a large short covering trade. so be careful. but the fact that gold and silver cracked in this global, aggressive central bank easing campaign doesn't make sense either. david: no, no. of course, it was a crack. it may come back. john, we're going to be talking more to you when the s&p futures close in just about ten minutes. thank you, john. liz: thanks john. let's bring in maury, chief investment officer of relative value partners and david steinberg. both these gentlemen a lot of experience in the markets and a lot of money that they work with. david, you're a bit more optimistic right now, and as we look at the s&p 500 which is certainly up over the past year, pretty stron
ahead. and if the united states locked in an economic cold war with china? the author of a new book says yes. he will tell us why he thinks u.s. companies and political leaders need a completely new battle plan to fight the chinese threat. hmmm. as we mentioned the dow only down about 17, 18 points right now. top of the hour. time for stocks as we do every 15 minutes. we head down to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. hey, nicole. >> hey, trace, good afternoon, everybody. the dow is down 18 points. it is off the highs we saw yesterday. closed at the highest level since december of 2007. today pulling back about 18 points. not really giving back that 244 point gain we saw yesterday. right now the nasdaq has a down arrow. the s&p is up one quarter of 1%. i want to look at a laggard though on the dow jones industrial average. that is kraft. when you look at kraft, they have two kinds of businesses. they have the international business and the north american business. they will be spinning off. that will happen october 1st. when they gave the projections for 2013
and the president of the united states, whoever it may be after november, a second chance, possibly a very clear timetable saying time is running out, our clocks are ticking. israel's clock is ticking much faster. we feel very threatened. the president of iran talking the day before, basically pledged to wipe israel off the face of the map. we have threatens civilization as we know it was certain civilizations threatened as well, so what the prime minister tried to make clear was he will not allow iran to acquire nuclear weapons, but he expects international community led by the united states to do it rather than have israel do it. connell: does that take the possibility of an israeli military strike against iranian nuclear institutions, whatever they may be, does it take it off the table before the end of the year or before the u.s. presidential election? >> i think it does. whabut he has basically said wae are allowing you more time to try and use diplomacy, to try and use of sanctions. we expect you to act. i think it creates more certainty, and in fact i think the redline were the prime mini
about the united states and how that relates to what israel does against iran and what we do again to stop iran from developing nuclear weapons? >> it is a really interesting statement from netanyahu. hillary clinton came out yesterday and said no deadlines. i think the israelis want a firm deadline from the united states on when we will do military action because ultimately if you look at this operation, yes, the israelis can hit something, yes, they can do some damage, but only with the united states, only with our b-1 bombers and cruise missiles can you do significant long-term damage to the nuclear facilities in iran. so the question is, yes, the israelis could go alone, but it is always far more optimal to get on board with the united states. so i think this issue is going to remain a live issue into 2013, because i don't see how we have an off ramp. dagen: right. helima terrific to see you. we covered so much in little time. next time more time i promise. >> thanks. connell: new book that's come out from bob woodward. we will talk about that book on the day in which boehner h
of the united states ever handed a bigger financial crisis over to the guy that followed him than george bush did? >> well, if you look at -- >> yes or no. >> yeah, sure. >> who? >> herbert hoover. herbert hoover. >> well, herbert hoover took all the same policies, i mean, fdr didn't do anything that herbert hoover didn't do. higher taxes, more spending, more regulations, and it didn't work for hoover -- >> are you saying that fdr was the same as herbert hoover? >> well, he did hoover took tax rates up to 75% from 25%, fdr took them up towards 90%. he did massive spending, did all that regulation of the farm industry. nothing particularly new, just a little bit more and of course, it didn't work -- >> but grover, grover, interesting parallel. an interesting parallel. >> that's remarkable. >> wait, wait, wait. unless my memory's wrong, fdr was the only other president in certainly modern history who ever got re-elected with unemployment over 8% because the people believed that he had the right vision going forward to turn things around. isn't that a very similar position to what we're now seei
've dropped again, four years in a row, and now six different nations top the united states in the world economic forum's list of the most competitive economies. dagen: and this will go over well, in greece, calls to increase the workweek there to six days. say it ain't so. connell: say it ain't so. a lot to talk about today. at the top of the hour, before we talk about anything else, let's do stocks now as we do every 15 minutes with nicole petallides. disney today, all-time high. nicole: we have a long-term chart of disney to take a look at here. when you look at it year to date, up over 30%. hitting all-time high of 51.13. recently we found that between april and june, disneyland resort drew the most visitors than it ever had before in the same period. of course you think of disneyland, you think of disney resorts, you think of also media and film. films like the avengers for example. disney certainly has recent success and that is evident here in the stock up 2 1/2%. the major market averages the dow right now is up about 8 1/2 points. back above the 13,000 mark. we're watching europ
the president has taken office, for every one dollar added to the economy, the united states has added more than 3 dollars in debt. while there's been a 12% increase in economic output, there's been a 50% increase in the national debt. those are the numbers. here's something not to get lost today. one of the biggest names in america business says the economy is getting worse. we're going to have more on why fedex is lowering its outlook. dagen: you wonder why oil is selling off. one of the biggest names in the bond market, he is here in studio. bob auwaerter coming on. bank of america, merrill lynch just said gold going to end up going to $2400 an ounce. we know how those often work out. look at oil at $96 a barrel.

to be president of the united states. this is nuts. if he simply filed normally, taking the deductions he was legally able to take, he would have paid a lower tax rate than he paid. purely for show he deliberately inflated his tax rate on purpose. on mad o owe blog today it was said mr. romney was in the preferred selection of selecting his own tax rate and then working backwards from there. this is a mess for the romney campaign. in these new tax returns we learn mr. romney made $13 million in total income last year. aside from the gee whiz factor of his making $13 million a year, even though he hasn't had an actual paying job since 1999, aside from that there is also the fact that even other average millionaires in this country pay way more in taxes than mitt romney pay. your average tax rate for your run of the mill millionaire now is 25%. but mitt romney is a special kind of millionaire. he doesn't pay 25%. he only pays 14.1%. how do you get 10 points below the rate that even the other millionaires are paying? you get that by trying, by working really hard by avoiding taxes. as the wa
the attorney general of united states tell us we were a nation of power on race, the president came on later to say the police officers acted stupidly resting henry louis gates. of any knowledge. it was another thing after another the allies of the president has said if you oppose the stimulus, you are racist. if you're against obama can health care reform are racist because you don't want the president to succeed because he is black. i said no, this is not what we were supposed to have herald, not the american milken four. we should truly be taking diversity as our fabric to say this is what this is country is all about rather than the ethnicity with the election of obama. lou: it was before his election, as you point out, the congressional black caucus, these are organizations devoted to the perpetuation of ethnic identity and interest. what i struggle with is how are those interest any different than anybody else of interest and why aren't they combined? isn't that what it is supposed to be all about? >> i devoted an entire chapter to the caucus, and it should come to an end. they were fo
on television and start telling us what he would do as president of the united states neil: what is he doing? he has more money. it started with all of this house a bill, did not spend it at the convention. the obama folks outspent 6-1. the argument was, resources and really get ready for the fall. but i am no expert. maybe that is a good strategy, but it is not proving that we now in the polls. what do you think? >> it is not proving that way because barack obama has in speaking about what barack obama watson to speak about. and that is where you lose. mitt romney has to talk about the issues that he wants to talk about. when you have unemployment going to the rich, more people on food stamps than ever before in this country and 30 embassies under siege, ambassadors being killed. who wants to talk about medicare? it gives you a headache. sector but the issues that concern all of america and what is going on in the world and what u.s. president are going to do to solve it. neil: 71 data that. i would talk about medicare. when you take a look at what's going on here, you do the math. these other
. >> in the sense that china is slowing down, europe is a mess, a lot of foreign capital coming to the united states, whether it's real estate. equities, treasuries, and worst still the united states, the bad lot. people are going to maintain them and we're outperforming and many versus india and russia and the money is slowing out of the u.s. and you see the money coming here. so far so good. and the scenario is right about bernanke being proactive and the money keeps coming. >> every time you come to the program, a great guest for us to have and we appreciate that. you said, look, go for the big name, international companies, are you still there? >> still there because we like the global footprint and the core competencies and the global brand. it takes decades, good management and core competence to build that out. and apple, ge, ibm, not recommending those, they're good global brands around for 50, 100 years, and they're going to be around for another hundred years. >> joe, good stuff. we appreciate it, thank you so much. sir. time for the gold report. almost at 950 eastern. where are we now? lo
, europe, even china, the united states, print, print, print, up goes the market. i want to go back to president obama and the u.n. general assembly. no face-to-face meetings with world leaders. instead he will appear on abc's "the view", i've got a clip from his appearance. listen to this. >> she should run for office, she says she doesn't want to. >> yeah, i-- i think that michelle would be terrific, but temperamentally i just doesn't think that-- >> all right. friendly audience, light weight subject matter. joining us now is ed klein, the author of the book "the amateur" that refers to president obama. ed klein. >> great to be here. stuart: it appears that the president is disappearing political professionalism by going on "the view", getting to an audience, conventional broadcasts don't reach. >> there's a difference between his political professionalism and astuteness and his governance, which is amateuristic. in other words, when he gets into the washington mix, he's unable to get things done because he doesn't reach out to people. he doesn't create personal relationships in w
being a large amount of debt, and it is the reason why in ranking after ranking we are seeing the united states but is lower and lower. this is not a place for companies want to come. lori: what should we be spending in regulatory costs given are lackluster pay? >> it's going to get worse before it gets better. the administration's different after the election and an enormous amount of regulatory activity. the right thing to do is actually just sort of stop issuing new regulations for a while. take a timeout. then put in a system where if you want to add a regulation something else has to go. you're forced to pick and do it wisely. certainly congress there is no escape. we're hurting the economy. unless we change the laws, the regulations that implement them will state. lori: can you tell me or is it fair to suggest that these burdensome costs are actually shaving points of gdp? >> there is no question about that. again, if i told you there have been a $500 billion tax increase will be talking and howard slow gdp growth. we know the debt burden is slowing gdp growth. its other shock that
